MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MatSing, the pioneer for the innovative lens antennas delivering unmatched network capacity in venues and macros, today announced that it has been selected by a leading mobile network operator (MNO) to provide high-bandwidth connectivity for the upcoming Miami Grand Prix. The inaugural Miami Grand Prix will act as the fifth round of the Formula One 2022 World Championship. MatSing antennas deployed will deliver 4G and 5G connectivity for the MNO, allowing fans to experience an unparalleled cellular experience and share updates from anywhere in the stands.
With six (6) lens antennas covering the bleachers and stands and an additional location on top of the famous Hard Rock Stadium, fans will be able to experience a superior connected experience from anywhere in the event. With the network provisioned within a few days by the MNO, the MatSing lens antennas were installed and integrated into the MNO’s network in a rapid and efficient manner at the venue.
“As technology has evolved, it’s become a larger part of the race experience for modern day fans who want a connection capable of supporting social media posting, mobile apps and of course checking updates and ordering concession and merchandise. We want to enable this experience for fans and allow them to have the best race day possible,” said Bo Larsson, CEO of MatSing. “Our lens antennas are future-proofed to achieve this data experience for years and easily integrated into the carrier’s networks.”
The location of the deployments and spherical design of MatSing lens antennas generate a clear path of connection targeted at hot-spot areas that see a high-concentration of fans such as the grandstand, suites, and bleachers. A single antenna is able to provide up to 48 high-capacity coverage sectors, reducing the number of antenna locations needed. This reduction in infrastructure needed combined with the highest-capacity and quick deployment time make them an ideal solution for venues and macros.
The 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix will take place on Sunday, May 8. Verizon is the main sponsor at the venue.
Founded in 2005, MatSing has developed and patented new meta-materials to create the world’s first lightweight and multibeam Lens Antennas. This new approach for high-performance, high-capacity antenna design is more efficient and offers key advantages over dish and array antennas, the ability to provide broadband coverage, emit and maintain multiple beams, and to do so cleanly with minimal RF interference. Nationwide coverage isn’t the only critical challenge facing telecoms companies, and MatSing’s Lens antenna solution is ideal to meet the capacity demands of a smartphone-equipped population with new apps that chew through data, including uses at outdoor events, stadiums and macro uses in major cities. Each antenna can provide multiple independent sectors, up to 48, providing the highest capacity across multiple bands with the fewest antennas possible. MatSing lens technology is the perfect fit for 4G, LTE, and 5G mobile broadband coverage, and it is the most cost-effective network densification tool in the industry.
